Updated March 20, 2024 - 12:18 pm

Motorists can expect another round of Las Vegas Boulevard travel disruptions with the latest phase of a yearslong road project.

Over the next few weeks lane restrictions can be expected on the Strip between Harmon and Reno avenues and on portions of Tropicana Avenue near the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard, Clark County announced last week.

This Phase C work is estimated to cost $56 million to complete. Together with Phases A and B, the overall project cost is up to $150 million.

The majority of the roadwork and associated lane restrictions during Phase C, which is expected to last through August, will occur between midnight and 9 a.m. Sunday through Friday.

One southbound lane will remain open between Tropicana and Reno for waterline work.

Through April 5: Harmon Avenue to Park Avenue has one lane open southbound for communication/electrical and waterline work.

Through April 12: Las Vegas Boulevard between Tropicana and Reno Avenue will have three northbound lanes open to traffic as work improvements tied to the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada bus stop take place.
